In recognition and support of the growth of the Ragon Institute, Terry and Susan Ragon have generously committed funding for a new building at 600/625 Main Street in Cambridge. This new space will represent the Ragon’s world-class research, and Cambridge’s exceptional biomedical ecosystem, with a beautiful, functional design that includes a daycare and reserves a third of the site for open, public use spaces.
Our new home will allow us to double in size, bringing more scientists, researchers, biologists, clinicians, postdoctoral fellows, and operational staff into our collaborative fold, supported by a state of the art lab space, a large vivarium, and a BSL-3 lab that will allow us to safely expand our infectious disease research program.
A vital part of our success has come from our location in Kendall Square, a central hub of innovation and science, and we intentionally chose a location that would allow us to stay within this incredible, collaborative community. We are honored to be able to move into a city block that is meaningful to the City of Cambridge, and we are committed to designing a building that reaches out to the local community and provides an oasis of serenity and open space.

The Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard brings together scientists and engineers from diverse fields to better understand the immune system and support human health.
Our people are our greatest asset. We are committed to creating a supportive and inclusive environment that is welcoming for all.
